The collaboration between the two companies will open up new possibilities for food manufacturers in various food applications including meat, cheese, batters and breadings.

The partnership will see Ingredion, an ingredient manufacturer, exclusively distribute potato starch ingredients from Sweden-based Lyckeby’s portfolio across countries in Asia Pacific as well as Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA).

Jorgen Kokke, president, Asia Pacific and EMEA, Ingredion, said: “We now have a full portfolio of modified starches and flours, which we can draw upon to advise customers on the best ingredient solution for their application and functionality requirements.”

The specialty potato starch range, which will continue to be sold under the existing Lyckeby brand names, will enable food manufacturers with extended functionalities—including improved crispiness in low moisture systems, processability in savoury applications, and control of melt and stretch in cheese analogues.

The potato starch manufacturer has 600 potato-growing farmers across Southern Sweden. The company manages and operates the entire supply chain from seed cultivation to the highly specialised production of food ingredients, enabling them to control the raw material, quality and traceability.
